I think that this topic is like asking how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.

The whole rational for these schemes is to make sure that each battery receives exactly the same voltage as the others. But does anyone really think that there is a significant voltage drop between batteries?

50 amps through 2/0 cable 3' long (about the round trip distance between three batteries with even the worst wiring configuration- #1) is about a hundredth of a volt.
